He declares the elder son Naushahzad, as heir to the throne. But when Naushahzad saves a young girl called Marcia from drowning, he tells her he is a Christian named Joseph. Soon, Marcia and Joseph (Naushahzad) fall in love. Complications arise when Marcia and her father demand justice from Nausherwan as they feel Naushahzad (Joseph), has deceived them leading to a tumultuous chain of events.
